Before you have liposuction performed, we recommend you talk to the doctor about the procedure in order to understand what will happen and the results you could see. Your doctor will do everything possible to give you the look and the shape that you want whether it’s on your thighs, buttocks, or another area of your body where excess fat is an issue.
Don’t fear that the results of liposuction won’t be permanent. When the fat cells are removed, they are gone. However, if you gain weight in the future, fat may accumulate in that area of the body. Most patients have liposuction performed on the thighs, hips, stomach, and arms. Your doctor will be able to determine the best area to start with and whether the area you’re looking at is suitable for liposuction.
After liposuction is performed, the skin might look a little different because fat cells are removed. Dimples that are already on your skin could become more pronounced after the procedure. There could be dimples that develop because of liposuction. Keep in mind that the procedure won’t remove stretch marks or other visible imperfections that are on your skin. The best results appear on skin that has good elasticity. If you know you’re going to have liposuction in the future, then try to drink as much water as possible so your skin remains healthy and supple.
When you meet with your doctor, talk about the goals that you have from the procedure. It could be to enhance your self-esteem because you don’t like the way you look. You might want to start wearing different types of clothing and don’t want a lot of excess fat in areas of your body that will show while wearing these types of clothes.
Before you go to have your procedure performed, your medical professional will examine your skin to check the condition and quality. Your vital signs will be checked as well to make sure you’re healthy. Since fat cells won’t generate once again after liposuction, you need to remember that any weight that you gain in the future could impact other areas of your body instead of the area where the procedure was performed.
